34 weeks, 2 days
I feel like something changed last night. I took DD out for a walk to run errands, and I had to walk so slowly the old ladies with their walkers were passing me. I felt a huge amount of pressure between my legs, and very strong movements from baby. I wonder if he's become engaged. Actually, I realized I'm not sure how to tell...I think I remember that "bowling ball between the thighs" feeling from DD. I'm not there yet, but oh the pressure!
Amy: I am SO relieved for you that your house is okay. How wonderful!!
Beansmama: happy anniversary! DH and I celebrate our 3 year wedding anniversary on the 20th. it's also his birthday this sunday. I fear both events will get lost in all the stuff going on! and thanks for the movie recommendations. that linked one sounds right up my alley. we're also dying to see Supersize Me. Now that there's a babysitter around (Mum) we have a remote chance, but I am guessing it will wait until it's out on DVD.
I also have fuzzy peach belly, with a few black hairs that pop up right around my belly button. Normally I'm a deep inny, but it's flat now, and my linea nigra starts there. I get dark all around the belly button, then a line downwards. I'm not really dark-skinned, but not that pale either. Nipples are very dark, that theory about the reason for the linea nigra and the dark nipples makes alot of sense.
amelia and Katie: i bet you learn to love your small spaces. i can never live in a house again - i get hives just thinking about cleaning it, having to go up and down stairs, etc., lol. I just love one-floor living. I especially love that doing laundry doesn't require me to be out of eyesight from the kid(s). And I agree it does seem to make us feel like we're all together, though we have a couple rooms to retreat to if someone wants privacy (not likely to happen with kids around though, lol).
Letia: wow, you and your MW are really not going to have a whole lot of time together, are you? hope you get a nice warm comfy feeling from her. i had to LOL at your comment about hitting baby on the podium while you sing. i've knocked a few things over with my belly lately, lol.
momadance: yes, I've had some ex-boyfriend dreams. but this particular ex always seems to show up when i'm anxious about something. things ended rather badly between us and he seems to have become my dream symbol for anxiety. i guess my brain expresses it's fears by constructing stories in which he usually plays a major role. dream psychology is fascinating to me, though i really wish this guy would get out of my head. i feel guilty, like i'm betraying my dh. it's not that i do anything in the dreams, it's just the feelings. i have come to accept that the feelings are just dream manifestations of real life stress, and not some secret lingering love or whatever. i'm honestly over the dude, so it pisses me off that he's still in my brain!!
MTB: you may end up being the first to birth here, did they get your EDD wrong cuz if i read you right they are inducing 3 weeks early, did I miss something?
mirthfulmum: i have to admit i'm a bit envious of Alias' daycare experience. EMily really isn't ready for that sortof thing yet, but i admit it would be great to have some time with the baby if i knew she was having fun. i've become a pretty lame playmate for her lately. i can't sit on the floor, and i'm either busy unpacking/tidying or i'm resting!
Ann: i found a nice family doctor (thanks to mirthful!) and will be discussing delayed vaxing with her. I did most of dd's vaxes, but the 2 month one really was hard on her (and me! i think it took me longer to recover than her!) and i think delaying it would be more humane. in the US they want to do hep B in the hospital which we declined. they don't do it here in canada. and i think they do one less vax here as well (I think it's the prevnar they have in the US that they dont' here). emily also hasn't had her mmr yet. still waffling on that one.
Okay, DH is out with DD and I'm supposed to be working on my paper, so I'd better get to it lest he come home and find me surfing, lol.
have a great day everyone!
